About Me

I grew up in the small East Sussex village of Icklesham. I studied Marine Biology at the University of St Andrews, and after graduating in 2013 I worked with the Sea Mammal Research Unit around the Scottish coastline. I worked in places like the Isle of May, Islay, and Skye, as well as the uninhabited North Rona, and quickly fell in love with island life.

I then went on to work with the British Antarctic Survey, spending 16 months on Bird Island, a small island near South Georgia where I was mainly working with seals and helping the other assistants with penguins and seabirds, and spent the winter in a team of four.

After Bird Island I spent field seasons in Scotland and Chile, studying red deer and seals, before moving to North Devon to volunteer with the National Trust. This was the first time I experienced dry stone walling and working with the tenant farmers. 

Outside of work I can spend many hours infront of the fire knitting or sewing. I practise yoga daily and enjoy (!) the occassional wild swim. When off island I make the most of hiking and climbing opportunities. 

I am passionate about the natural world, conservation and sustainable living.
